I’m 52-year-old and suffering with incontinence. I hate though thought of living with this for the rest of my life and would like to know what female treatment is available? I just want this to stop. Does anyone have any personal experiences they would like to share?
I have suffered with stress incontinence for some time now which has just been really light since having children i did do pelvic floor exercises as advised by the doctor but over the last year or so i noticed a change i went back to my doctors and was told i now have urge incontinence. Its really difficult trying to live a normal life i wear Tena pants super but i just feel so paranoid. i would appreciate any help or advice to help with my situation. Thanks in advance 🙂
How did you find the pelvic floor exercises, did you notice any improvement?
Behavioral treatment is a common method for treating it that doesn’t involve medication or surgery, has your Doctor given you any information on this?
I can also advise an alternative product for you if you let me know your level of incontinence and mobility.
Behavioral treatment aims to help you keep urine in the bladder for longer and prevent accidents. This includes bladder retraining and urge suppression. You will learn how to ignore the first urge to go the toilet and your bladder will eventually tolerate being stretched as it fills. Most people choose this over the option of surgery, and you can talk to your GP about this option if you are willing to try it.
Do you wear Tena Comfort Extra alongside Tena Pants Super? How are you finding these?
